Lightwire Theatre presents

The Adventures of Tortoise & Hare

The Next Generation

Saturday, January 21, 2023 @ 11am & 2pm

We begin with Aesop’s classic fable of ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’ and fast-forward 10 years later to a time when personal connections and life experiences seem to be losing to modern-day distractions like smartphones and video games. Our two characters are now raising children of their own, Tortoise Junior and Lil’ Hare, who embark on a race of their own. When their adventure leads our Next Gen heroes into unexpected territory, Old Man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their differences to find and save their children, overcoming whatever hurdles, to make it to the finish line.

With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling and music from classical to pop, this production brings this legendary tale into brilliant new light.

Approximate Running Time: 60 Minutes
Recommended Ages: 5-9

The Emelin Family Series is Sponsored by Miller’s Toys
